corsair pc2700 question

I think I am going to go the KT333 route and I found a 512MB stick of Corsair PC 2700 rated at CL 2.0 (Corsair part # CMX512-2700C2).
Now in the THG article "DDR333 For Athlon: VIA KT333 vs. KT266A" It says

"In our laboratory tests, however, we were unable to get the hand-picked memory module (PC2700) from Corsair (CM64SD256-2700CX2H) to run in CAS latency mode CL2.0 at 166 MHz memory clock, regardless of the motherboards we used".

Whats the deal with that? Is it just bad memory, or is it the motherboard? Is it fixed yet and would I have any advantage buying that ram?

  1. Corsair has always been great quality, I would think it was just a bad stick (hand-picked or not).

  4. will this memory work with an Asus A7V333 mobo? Please help i'm starting to stress out, i just ordered all these components. Now I'm seeing bad comments on the mobo.
  5. I just put a computer together with the A7V333 and 256MB of Corsair PC2700 CL2 ram, and it works great.
